Overbury v Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 1st XI on Sat 25 May 2019 at 1.30pm
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Won by 84 runs

Match report Wellesbourne made it three wins out of four this season with a good 84-run win at the beautiful ground of Overbury and turned around the 144-run defeat in the corresponding game last season. Overbury won the toss and they struck in the fourth over when Tom Walker had Myles Isted stumped by Dave Bull and four overs later Walker bowled Jamie Maynard (11) and the visitors were 38 for two. Bourne recovered well from that situation due to an excellent 82-run stand for the third wicket by Tommy Wheeler and Dave Barnett with both players batting well and looking in no trouble until both were dismissed in successive overs. Wheeler, who made a good 48, went first to a catch by Walker off Dave Westmore and Barnett then followed as Mark Trueman bowled him for 23. Things didn’t improve for Bourne when Craig Cook was caught behind by Bull off Josh Colwell who then bowled Matt Woods and the away side had slumped to 138 for six. This brought together Travis Butcher and Tom Stephenson and these two saw off the dangerous Colwell (2-33) and built a decent partnership of 47 before Trueman (2-49) bowled Stephenson. Butcher continued to press on and with the assistance of young Noah Rose kept the scoreboard ticking along with both players hitting two sixes until on 217 Rose was bowled by Josh Tamcken for 24. Butcher continued on to a fine 46 not out and with the help of Sean Hopwood saw Bourne through to 238 for eight in their 45 overs, 40 runs of which came from wides. With the score about par for this ground the hosts fancied their chances and openers Colwell and Bull were quickly making inroads into the total and raced to 64 in the 10th over when Rose made a breakthrough having Bull (23) bowled. Seven runs later Jamie Maynard had incoming batsman Paul Hockey caught by Stephenson before Maynard (2-23) grabbed the important wicket of the Overbury skipper Colwell for 46 trapping him lbw and the hosts were 91 for three. This gave Bourne the impetus they needed and two quick wickets followed as Stephenson in a fine spell (8-2-2-12) had Trueman lbw and Walker bowled. However, Tamcken and Westmore began to build a decent stand together but on 134 Hopwood had Westmore lbw for 18 and when Tamcken was caught behind by Barnett off the returning Rose for 20 Bourne sensed victory. This soon came as Rose (3-42) followed up having Adam Brunt caught by Barnett before Hopwood (3-34) took the final two wickets in successive balls removing Ian Posgate and Phil Warner to catches by Wheeler and Cook respectively.
